Andrew Lo portrait photoWhy did you choose Green Templeton for your place of study?

I chose Green Templeton College for my MSc in Management Research study without hesitation as I had previously taken the Senior Executive Finance programme at Green Templeton College which sparked my interest in finance. The college was a great place to meet other students studying at the Saïd Business School and cultivated a special fellowship among us. The MSc degree turned out to be transformational as my career pivoted from engineering to finance.

Can you give an overview of your current role?

As Executive Director at UBS Hong Kong branch I advise high net worth individuals and family offices on investing and wealth management. I have a specialist interest in hedge fund and private market investing and hold the CAIA charter in alternative investment. In addition, I am a member of the workgroup on Sustainable Finance in UBS.

I have remained active with Oxford University in a number of roles. As a member of the Oxford China Advisory Group, I give advice to the university on alumni and development matters. As a committee member of the China Oxford Scholarship Fund, I help with candidate selection, fundraising and investment management. I was also a President of the local alumni association – the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Hong Kong.

What are your interests beyond work?

My hobbies are Masters swimming, tennis and wine tasting.

What would you consider your greatest achievement in life so far?

Completing my doctoral degree part time at the University of Manchester as a father working full time in banking and finance.
